I stopped by in the Rigel System to go to the big magitech expo and take a look around. It didn’t seem much like an expo, there were a lot of performers around. Of course, I walking around as basically a big balloon animal, got mistaken for one of the props. They didn’t believe me when I said I was just a nanite synth, they didn’t bother scanning me until after the act was over to validate my ID.
Being a synthetic creature has its perks. The nanites that make up my body can rearrange themselves into just about anything, so I can experiment with new shapes and sizes. I try to emulate something not-so-obviously robotic, but I can do so many synth-y things despite my looks.
It’s a lot more convenient to just turn my hand into a tool instead of carrying around a toolbox everywhere. Maintenance on the ship is a breeze, I can look in all the service panels to see hot spots and pinpoint all the little broken components without needing to do tedious scans.
Today was just one of those days. I had to pick a magmat1 haul on April Fool’s, the most unpredictable day of the entire standard year. Paws2 recording. Is it picking up my peach3 correctly? Ugh. It didn’t even– You know what? I’ll just keep sqrrrking4.
This was supposed to be a short run, Alpha Centauri to Sol and back in time for dinner. Picked up the cargo at 06:00 ship’s thyme5, estimated arrival at Goal6 by 13:00 if the traffic is bad on the main routes.
I hope you’re having a wonderful day.
This is just a test post to see if automated builds are working, but I might as well make it a positive affirmation.
If I can keep up with it, I plan on having a post every day in April, following Caudle’s Apto April prompts. Although, I won’t be writing them every day, as you’ve probably guessed that this post exists because I wanted to find a way to write a bunch of things all at once and have stuff show up once a day.

A lot has happened in the past week and a half for me. In brief: there was a shooting on my university campus that left one student in my graduating class dead, my right knee unexpectedly sprained and dislocated, and I’m now being evicted and have to move out by the end of March. That last part has some very big implications for this blog, and I’ll mainly focus on that.
The age-old debate: one space after each sentence, or two spaces after each sentence. It’s a whitespace debate older than the most furious tabs versus spaces debacle. Which is right, which is wrong? Sure, you could explain this through a simple difference of opinion, or perhaps a generational divide, but the issue is a bit more nuanced than that. The quick answer is: follow whatever style manual you’re given. However, if you’re like me, you’re your own boss when it comes to formatting you’re writing in certain situations (like here).
My struggles with ADHD have lead me to seek out and try many, many different techniques to try and be more productive. No one technique really worked. Sure, they would help for a time, but then I’d slip up once and fall into a period of complete executive dysfunction again. Turns out, the thing that helped the most (besides getting medication obviously) was simply not making myself feel guilty for not finishing all the tasks I had set out for the day.
After getting a ton of gift cards for Christmas, I bought an Apple Watch SE since it was on sale. I’ve only had it on for a few days and I’m already enjoying it, although I’m struggling to feel like I’m utilizing it to its fullest potential. I thought I’d post about my feelings using it so far.
This isn’t my first smartwatch, I originally wore a Pebble 2 for a year or two before it physically fell apart (well after the company went defunct).
I want to read more It’s one of those things where I enjoy it, but can’t get started often (thanks ADHD). I go in spells of reading all the time, then not reading at all for several months, then getting back into it. I also have a habit of getting a library card, using it once, returning the book, losing the card, and forgetting about it. Times have changed with that at least.
